Hatch is open to all enthusiastic, open-minded and ambitious designers, planners, engineers and other shapers of the built environment in Wales. Give us a call if you'd like to find out more.
Once registered, you will receive email updates about Hatch events and opportunities, and you will be added to the list of active Hatch participants on our website (with your permission)
Some Hatch events will have an attendance fee as indicated on the programme. This is to help cover costs and will help us to bring in speakers and to visit places that we wouldn’t otherwise be able to do. This will be kept to a minimum with most events costing just £5 and others will remain free.
The Design Commission invests its resources to facilitate Hatch, and we expect those who join to actively contribute their skills and ideas to the group. (Those who have not contributed for a period six month will be removed from the website.)
